Snowflake rosettes by tim holtz sizzix

When these dies first came in I knew I had to have one... But which one I wasn't sure.  So I started with the larger of the two which makes one lovely snowflake and ended up getting the other one another day as I had visions of my Christmas tree with these hanging off it.

here are the first three I made

another couple

and here are the three different ones there are. 
The first is on its own Snowflake Rosette from Crafts U Love
the second and third are the Mini Snowflake Rosettes from Crafts U Love

Pop N Cuts Snowman

Me again back with a Sizzix Pop n Cuts card using the circle card, a floating base (see tutorial HERE)
The Sizzix Basic Grey Snowman and a Hero Arts stamp for the tree.

Its my first attempt at it, its not perfect but its a start!  The trees are a bit floppy and my slits made are a bit untidy but I am sure with practise I can get something half decent.

The papers I used are Marianne papers - Scandinavian Christmas and all the materials
can be brought from

Sizzix Dies and Penny Black

My two favourite things right now... of course Penny Black stamps and Sizzix Dies.  This is one of the new Karen Burniston dies her accordion album.  This die is cut four times (or more/less) to make these fantastic accordion cards/albums.

Its really hard to take a photo of to get the full effect.  Also my phone does not take the clearest pictures.
I wonder if Jan one of our lovely Saturday regulars managed to make one too??  Jan was not convinced she
would manage to make one but I had more faith and said Yes she would.  Now here is the link to Karen Burniston You Tube Tutorial. So you all can see how its made.
